Haan are a band from New York that plays a mixture of sludge metal, punk, hardcore and noise rock and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Sing Praises" which was released by Kaos Kontrol.
A very heavy hardcore sound starts off the ep along with the heaviness of sludge and noise rock and after awhile melodic yet aggressive vocals are added onto the recording and the music is mostly rooted in the east coast style and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion and the songs also mix in a great amount of reverb and you can also h ear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and while the music is rooted in the 90's it still sounds very modern at the same time and there is also a brief use of clean singing and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Haan plays a musical style that takes hardcore punk and noise rock and mixes it in with the heaviness of sludge metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion Haan are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, hardcore punk and noise rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Cutting" and "War Dance". 8 out of 10.
